A Danish ship carrying hundreds of tons of Syrian chemical weapons steamed into the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro Wednesday for a rendezvous with a U.S. cargo vessel that will destroy the toxic material.Once the chemicals are moved onto the Cape Ray, it will sail into the open sea and begin the process of neutralizing the materials.The Ark Futura last month picked up the last batch of Syrian chemical weapons -- including mustard gas and the raw materials for sarin nerve gas -- that were removed as part of the international effort to destroy Syria's chemical stockpile.
